Onorato Landscaping LLC Landscape Design in Bergen County

Many people want to know if landscape design is a good investment.  In a word, yes, but only if you choose a company that provides the highest quality design combined with reasonable pricing. In her article How much value does landscaping add to your home when selling?, Jill Chodorov Kaminsky states that returns range from 5% – 1000%.

That is a huge range.  A designer who is not talented or significantly overcharges for a project can reduce your return.  However, a talented landscape designer with fair rates will enable you to receive a high return on investment.  Just as importantly, a skilled designer will enable you to enjoy your yard for years, and will have your friends and neighbors asking “Who did your landscaping?”

Seven tips to finding the best landscape design firm for your needs in Bergen County

Many people are not sure how to hire the best landscape design company to fit their needs. Here are seven tips that can guide you to the landscape design firms that can help you to bring your landscaping dreams to life.

  1. Figure out what you want – It is critical not only to look at the designer’s portfolio, but look for a landscape designer who can help you clarify and crystallize your ideas and then transform them into a design that can be implemented within a reasonable timeframe and within your budget. Sometimes your dream is bigger than your budget.  It is at these times that identifying and vetting the right landscape design company—one that understands your goals and your pocketbook—can be a real find!
  2. Creativity – Lower-end firms will have a portfolio that lacks innovative and customized design elements—after a while it all looks the same. A quality landscape design firm will start by walking your property, taking in the slope, the lay of the land, etc.  They will listen to your dreams and talk about your budget.  Then they will design a customized plan that includes the features you desire.  The best landscape designers are like master sculptors; with the ability to bring out the beauty of your “block of stone”.
  3. Reputation – If you like a landscape designer’s portfolio, ask for references and testimonials. Check their on-line reviews.  If their customers are saying things that support their claims, you are on the right track. If they are contradicting their claims, it may be time to speak with a different landscape design firm!
  4. Make sure you are comfortable – Speak with the person who will do the designing. Make sure you are comfortable with them and that you understand how changes will be handled if they are required. Look for someone who is flexible, fair and accommodating.
  5. Avoid firms that cut corners – Ask how items like foundations and drainage will be handled. Ask how they prepare flower beds so that they best support healthy flowers. Ask if the shrubs, bushes and trees have warranties. Ask the designer if they handle all necessary permits.  Avoid firms that cut corners to lower price.  If a company tells you that the proper way to do something is one way and then offers a cheaper way – it usually requires corners to be cut.  In most cases, you end up unhappy or having to pay a second time to correct the issue.  Demand quality before you look at the price.   Quality is always the best value.
  6. Do they offer warranties? If a landscape designer invests in quality shrubs, bushes and trees, they should come with a one-year warranty based on proper care. Additionally, ask if their hardscaping and landscaping is warranted.  A high-end landscape design firm will provide a warranty on these, too.
  7. Speak to several landscape design firms. Make a list of what is important to you. Many people compare the following: quality, creative design, ability to help clarify your desires and dreams. Look for flexibility, reliability, excellent communication skills, prompt responses and quality service.

    Amazing service, really Happy with the results!
    Marc has been taking care of the landscaping needs of our home for many years now and we do not have a single thing to complain about.
    The landscapers are experienced in what they're
    … More doing and it's evident by the work they leave behind.
    I would sometimes forget & leave my chairs, tables, etc... on the lawn and the crew would move them, do their job, and then put them back on their place. I'm glad they don't just mow around and take the easy route. It's the little things that also help show they're hard-workers.
    A few new landscaping companies have opened up around our area. I've looked into them but with Onorato's great prices and the stress-free experience I've had with them, I'm not looking to make a switch anytime soon.
    Marc is also very kind and pleasant to talk to on the phone while making landscaping arrangements. When someone cares about their business it truly shows and makes life easier for everyone.
    I hope me sharing my personal experience helps out!

    If you want high quality professional service at a very fair price then look no further. Ornato Landscaping is by far the best landscaper I have ever used and will be the only landscaper I use going forward.
    I obtained 5 quotes for the
    … More planting of 9 Giant Green Thujas and removal of a shrubs. Not only was Marc’s price the lowest, but he was the most patient and professional compared with others. He took the time to plan the project with me and provided a very fair quote shortly after. No need to look any further if you are looking for a great landscaper.

    Marc and his staff are wonderful! They came by 2PM and left at 6. Our lawn looks great now! Thank you very much!

    Marc and his team are great! I would highly recommend if you need some landscaping done. Marc picked quality plants and did an excellent job on the installation. His team came by 12PM and was done by 4PM. Marc worked at Metropolitan Plant … More Exchange since he was young and is very knowledgeable.
  • Avatar Lou Tufano ★★★★★ 2 years ago
    Marc and his staff are first rate! They did a variety of plantings, stone and mulch work for us and transformed our back yard with beautiful paver work. Work is completed on or ahead of schedule, always within the estimated price and with … More quality materials.
  • Avatar Jeanne Zanone ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Excellent experience with knowledgeable, hard-working designer/landscapers after Onorato was chosen from numerous estimates. Marc and his crew extracted unwanted trees and shrubs (one over 40ft!) and created a beautiful landscape for us … More with two focal-point trees, and a variety of shrubs which included 16 Abrovitae. Chosen plants compliment our home, but will also survive with sun conditions. When we asked to change plant locations or add items during installation, Marc met every request; he even stayed after his crew departed to water and instruct us on maintenance. We really couldn't be happier with the results!

    This is the first time I tried finding a service provider on this site, since I tend to do a lot of projects myself. In a nutshell, Marc was great! I am a very meticulous person when undertaking projects due to my background in architecture, and Marc exceeded my expectations. I began a large hardscape project last year and needed the finishing touch of a large sod install project . It required ripping out the old turf, regrading the soil where trees were recently removed, installing new topsoil and 2500sf of sod. All of this on top of hilly terrain. Marc's crew was very professional and meticulous. His company had all the required tools and multiple trucks to complete the project. It was completed in a timely manner, within a few days of singing the contract. The communication and coordination was excellent. The pricing was very competitive and I am extremely happy with the entire experience.

    We chose Onorato over many estimates for a large landscaping project involving removal of a 50 foot tree, three other trees, and various bushes. We were also provided with a detailed plan to plant two large feature trees, multiple abrovitae, and numerous smaller bushes that would grow well here. After previous removal of the huge tree, Marc and his crew worked an entire day to transform our property to a beautiful landscape. They are patient, hard-working and very thorough. We asked for a few changes and additions throughout the day, and nothing was ever a problem. Whatever we wanted was done with a smile. Onorato mulched our entire property too and even included seeding of other grass areas and replacement of rock features that wasn't included in the estimate. Marc stayed after his crew to teach us about watering and care. I can't tell you how happy we are with this highly professional yet personable company. Honestly, we wouldn't change a thing.

    What a wonderful experience. Marc came out to my home the very next day to discuss the work I requested. He came up with an amazing design for the front and back of my home which included many specimen plantings and a paver patio in the back. Marc and his team was efficient, knowledgeable and finished the job on time as he promised. We were extremely satisfied with EVERYTHING!!!
